       Additional Information  
     
      The Black Death is a gothic thriller in the tradition of Copper's Necropolis and The House of the Wolf. Architect John Carter leaves London to become a junior partner in a prosperous building firm in Thornton Bassett, a rustic village in the heart of Dartmoor. His hopes for a new life begin to cloud as he slowly becomes aware of a sinister mystery lurking beneath the village's placid facade.

    A beautifully atmospheric novel written by a master of the macabre, this novel should appeal to fans of gothics, Sherlockians, and anyone who remembers fondly the more genteel horrors of Bram Stoker and Arthur Conan Doyle.
